The ancestors of the name Maultsby date back to the days of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from their residence in the region of Maultby in various counties throughout England. Maultsby is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. Habitation names form the other broad category of surnames that were derived from place-names. They were derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. Other local names are derived from the names of houses, manors, estates, regions, and entire counties.

Early Origins of the Maultsby family


The surname Maultsby was first found in Yorkshire at Maltby (Maultby) a former mining town and civil parish in South Yorkshire and/or at Maltby a village and civil parish in North Yorkshire. Maltby is also a hamlet in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire. The Yorkshire locals are by far the larger of the place names. There are three distinct listings in the Domesday Book of 1086 and all are spelt Maltbi.

The place name literally means "farmstead or village of a man called Malti," or "where the malt is made." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Mills, A.D., Dictionary of English Place-Names. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-19-869156-4)

"This place was formerly the residence of a family of the same name, who continued in possession for several generations." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.

The parish of Acaster-Malbais in the union of York, partly in the Ainsty wapentake in the West Riding of Yorkshire was home to another branch of the family. "This place partly derives its name from the family of Malby, who flourished here for some centuries after the Conquest, until at length a daughter and heiress was married to Fairfax of Walton, created Viscount Emley." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.

Migration of the Maultsby family to the New World and Oceana


In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Maultsbys to arrive on North American shores: John Maltby settled in Salem, Massachusetts in 1630; along with Robert and William; Samuel Maltby settled in Fairfield, Conn. in 1820.
